I used this phone regularly for about 8 months. The rear camera had decent performance but the front camera was quite bad. Battery life was acceptable. I could usually get through the day on a single charge with somewhat heavy use. Call quality was always excellent. I actually liked the design more than almost any other android phone. The screen went right to the edges of the device, I liked the fake carbon fiber look on the battery cover, and appreciate the 4" screen size more so than every other device now that is 4.3" and up.
I didn't like that the colors that the display produced always seemed washed out. Especially compared with an iPhone 4/4S display or any LED display. I also didn't like that despite the 1GB of RAM and dual core Tegra 2, the OS never felt very smooth. Scrolling screen to screen was often choppy and app switching was so so. Motorola's skin on android here was also a mixed bag. Some features they added were nice and useful...some of it was pretty ugly though.
Overall, a nice device that I recommend.
